Congratulations! You've made
the right choice. Most people have a hard time making this choice. You need
to be able to recognize a penny when you see one. But you don't need to
remember many details to distinguish it from a dime or quarter. The fact
that most people don't make the correct choice suggests that we're likely
to remember only enough about an object to recognize it in everyday life.
